"I have survived those difficult days," she says. In 1986, Wang, who had just returned to the island, had moved several times for the clinic. Later, she simply renovated her small house to free up the first floor as the consulting room, and the whole family were crammed on the second floor. When a patient knocked on the door at night, the whole family would be awakened.

The bad weather on the island is often a huge test for her as there is no safe haven on the island. Once there was a typhoon, and a fisherman in the village was worried that the boat would be blown away. He rushed to the dock to check in the wind and rain. He accidentally knocked his head on the road and bled a lot. In desperation, he knocked on Wang's door. Wang, who served the villagers 24 hours a day, opened the door without hesitation. The strong wind filled the house instantly and went straight to the second floor and overturned the roof. The youngest son's cry for help came upstairs, and she did not complain at all in the face of adversities.
